Francis Van Hout

Francis Van Hout one of my oldest and greatest friends made a brilliant solo show at the UC Canterbury School of Fine Arts gallery last week ....coinciding with the opening of the new wings for film and post grad artists studios

All 4 walls were filled with a single marching file of paintings with definitive photographic sensation......stand in the middle of the room and slowly turn in a circle 360 degrees for the best view ....


Each work is dated ... the show is in chronological order ... mapping out one month of his life in paintings... each day some paintings were made ...some days prolific.... some days only one or nothing for the day ...

following different paths and thoughts over a month











but ...
what happened on the lost days?
